It's a great day to be at Ride!!
Welcome! To Our Class Website

Second Grade Math and Science
Conference Period: 10:05 - 11:00

Hello! I am Rebecca Russell, your child’s 2nd grade Math and Science teacher.
This is my second year teaching 2nd grade at Sally K Ride Elementary.
 I love teaching and could not imagine doing anything else.
I can’t wait to get this year start with your child.
We are going to have so much fun!
Please check the website weekly.
I will post events, homework, and objectives to keep you informed about your child’s education.
If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail me.

TEKS for the week:

In Math we will....
In Science we will...
*apply mathematics to problems arising in everyday life, society, and the workplace.[1A]
*recall basic facts to add and subtract within 20 with automaticity.[4A]
*solve one-step and multi-step word problems involving addition and subtraction within 1,000 using a variety of strategies based on place value, including algorithms. [4C]
*generate and solve problem situations for a given mathematical number sentence involving addition and subtraction of whole numbers within 1,000. [4D]
*communicate mathematical ideas, reasoning, and their implications using multiple representations, including symbols, diagrams, graphs, and language as appropriate.[1D]
*analyze mathematical relationships to connect and communicate mathematical ideas.[1F]
*locate the position of a given whole number on an open number line. [2E]
*name the whole number that corresponds to a specific point on a number line. [2F]
*use a problem-solving model that incorporates analyzing given information, formulating a plan or strategy, determining a solution, justifying the solution, and evaluating the problem-solving process and the reasonableness of the solution.[1B]
*create and use representations to organize, record, and communicate mathematical ideas.[1E]
*explain that the length of a bar in a bar graph or the number of pictures in a pictograph represents the number of data points for a given category.[10A]
*draw conclusions and make predictions from information in a graph.[10D]
*generate a number that is greater than or less than a given whole number up to 1,200. [2C]
*use place value to compare and order whole numbers up to 1,200 using comparative language, numbers, and symbols (>, <, or =). [2D]
*use concrete and pictorial models to compose and decompose numbers up to 1,200 in more than one way as a sum of so many thousands, hundreds, tens, and ones.[2A]
*use standard, word, and expanded forms to represent numbers up to 1,200. [2B]
*determine whether a number up to 40 is even or odd using pairings of objects to represent the number.[7A]
*use an understanding of place value to determine the number that is 10 or 100 more or less than a given number up to 1,200.[7B]
*display, explain, and justify mathematical ideas and arguments using precise mathematical language in written or oral communication.[1G]

*collect, record, and compare information using tools, including computers, hand lenses, rulers, primary balances, plastic beakers, magnets, collecting nets, notebooks, and safety goggles; timing devices, including clocks and stopwatches; weather instruments such as thermometers, wind vanes, and rain gauges. materials to support observations of habitats of organisms such as terrariums and aquariums.[4A]
*collect data from observations using simple equipment such as hand lenses, primary balances, thermometers, and non-standard measurement tools.[2C]
*record and organize data using pictures, numbers, and words.[2D]

Note from the Nurse
Dear Parents,
Many school children have health-related dietary restrictions, including peanut and/or tree nut allergies. For these students,strict avoidance is the only way to prevent a severe, life-threatening allergic reaction. We are asking your assistance in providing a safe learning environment for all students. We respectfully ask that peanut or nut containing products be avoided in the classroom. This includes foods labeled "may be processed on equipment that processes nuts". For some students, any exposure, even on skin contact, can cause a severe reaction. If your child has eaten a type of nut prior to coming to school, please assist him/her with thorough hand washing before coming to school. The cafeteria has designated peanut-free areas so lunch time food selections do not require restrictions. Thank you so much for your help in this matter. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at any ti.
Sincerely, KimSchill ,RN
